CVMBS is consistently ranked first nationally in extramural research funding among colleges of veterinary medicine. As a way of showcasing the excellence in student research that contributes to this success, CVMBS has developed an annual symposium. In addition to highlighting cutting edge research and innovative research approaches, the symposium provides an opportunity for local researchers and scientists to connect, enhancing collaborations and communication between basic and clinical researchers.
